An overbust corset in a single layer of hand painted silk duchesse, intricately embellished with hand stitched layers of French chantilly leavers lace, antique lace, ostrich feathers plumes and Swarovski crystals. Comes with a matching tie side knicker in silk duchesse, french lace and draped silk tulle, suitable for UK size 8-12.
The centre front and back of the corset are re-enforced with cotton coutil. Flat felled seams encase a mix of spiral steel and flat steel bones. Two part silver toned eyelets and cotton lacing form the centre back fastening.
This corset is a sample and the stitching is not up to the usual retail standard. This silk fabric weave is unfortunately unsuitable for this style has begun to pull at the waist and may eventually tear with prolonged wear. Some crystals have begun to shed so there are some glue marks. A similar design, if created as a bespoke garment, would cost around 70,000NOK.
The closed waist on this garment is 21", recommended for approximately a UK 8-10. Corsets should be worn 4-5" smaller than your natural waist size. The closed measurements of the corset are approximately 36" bust, 20" waist and 36" hip.
